Non-profit organisation

To raise funds to sponsor summer internships, students have been gathering donations for an auction. The trick is to be creative and get people to think about what they enjoy doing and can share with others

About a week into my job, I quickly realised that the prices we charge for our services invariably result in a heated debate about what the “right price” should be.  Nowhere was this more evident than in the meetings we held to discuss pricing strategies for the requests for proposals.

Within the organisation, there are two schools of thought on this issue.  The first argues that we should offer our services as cheaply as possible. MCIS after all is a non-profit organisation, therefore it should not be concerned with making money. Rather, its focus should be on ensuring that limited and non-English speaking persons can access social services through the use of interpreters.
